Bentley was found in our garage when she was a day old. She is now almost eight weeks old and has been through a lot. When she was four weeks old she fell down the stairs with our daughter. Last week I was told she has FIP. We are praying the vet is wrong. I took the attached photo before her diagnosis. Bentley looks like she is praying. Bentley got her name because I know I will never have a Bentley in my garage and I never thought I would ever find a kitten there either.
- Charlie (Chihuahua/dachshund) is the love of my life. My children are grown and left home and I have been trying to fill the void in my life. I was not sure about an inside dog because I always have dogs that are outside pets. As you can see, I gave it a try and Charlie is the best thing in the the world to fill that empty spot in my heart!
- Name: Nick
Age: Five months old
Home: Chemnitz, Saxony, Germany
Here is a picture of my duck when he was a duckling. Nick‘s home is in Chemnitz in our garden. He is so very cute! He follows us every time we call him, but he can also be such a rascal. In the summer, I join him swimming in our pond.
All day, Nick is busy catching worms, flies or other insects. He eats almost everything, but his favorites are white bread and apples. He drinks the water from the pond, but the little escapee will always steal our neighbours’ apples. 😉 when he can get away with it!
Nick has a little girlfriend. Her name is Lisa and they’re getting along very well. He’s not as naughty as my other ducks are. He won’t bite me if I pick him up. What I like most about him is his funny looking beak which makes him so special. The lower part of his beak is longer than the upper one which is unusual for ducks. The second is a recent picture of Nick with Lisa in which he is one month older. He is a good duck to have!

- Name: Ralph
Age: Three years old
Breed: British Bulldog
Ralph is one of my dogs he is a beautiful British Bulldog. He loves to play and go for walkies. He loves cats (I have three cats and four kittens at the moment). He gets over excited when he sees them! He runs at them and they get scared, but he just sniffs them. He is like a big chubby teddy bear. When we go out for walks we get stopped and people say he would be a great show dog. When he is asleep, he snores. He loves people very much but if somebody starts hitting you, even as pretend, he will attack. He is very gentle and loving. He is so soft with kids and other animals. He also is with my other dog Rio, they cuddle up together at night. I LOVE RALPH.

- Name: Blanquito
Age: Two months old
This is my dear Blanquito, or “whitey” in English. Blanquito’s mum brought her to life on 28 June, 2012. She had four kittens more: Vaquita, Limón, Andresico and León. Blanquito is the quietest of them, and, how you can see, she has two different eye colours. I think her look is penetrating, beautiful and expressive. She always looks good in photos! Tomorrow I’m going to move to another city, and I will only be able to see her on weekends and holidays … it’s sad, but I know the kittens will be happy staying here where they have the garden to run and explore.
By the way, all of them love playing on the garden throughout the day, and above everything they play in these logs. They hate having to go into the house at night, because they want to carry on playing. I hope you like her as much as she likes me! She is a very sweet and special kitten!
First we adopted two two-year old male cats, but on day two one of them attacked my face. I looked like a domestic violence victim with slashes and a black eye. He is now in a special foster program for “unadoptable” pets. We kept the other guy, Buddie, then went and got this sweet baby kitten from the same shelter. The first photo I ever took of her at the shelter, she was in the litter box. My husband walked up and we admired her knowledge of how to cover the poop… good kitty… but then she stepped in it. Just a baby. She doesn’t do that anymore, and she just learned to give me headbutts. The two cats get along famously. The first time they met, Buddie grabbed her and started licking. They play, sleep and eat together. Check out the cute toes Girlscouthas got.
- Augeris a playful, loving Boston terrier puppy who enjoys sleeping, snuggling, and eating green beans. He is already learning some tricks too, so he is very smart. He loves to be outside and to roll around in the grass with his big dog friend, Harry. He can be a bit of a handful at times, but he is very sweet at times also. He is very happy, and he brings that happiness with him everywhere he goes.
- Name: Cupcake
Age: One and a half years old
Kind: American Teddy Guinea Pig
Home: The Netherlands
Hello there! This is my adorable Cupcake! Cupcake is one of the sweetest guinea pigs I have. I can do almost everything with her, she doesn’t mind a thing. She’s really my cuddle pig, although she have an eye problem; entropion. I have to take care of her eye every day but she still jumps around in the cage all happy, and does not let it bother her.
Cupcake is quite affectionate, calm and curious. She doesn’t know any tricks but she does know when there’s food to get (she’ll stand up against the cage). She often popcorns, that is the jumping around they do that means they’re happy! She has one unique thing and that’s that she chirps like a bird – not so many guinea pigs make this kind of sound but Cupcake is a guinea pig who does it!
- Name: Wesley
Age: Five years old
Breed: Boston Terrier
Home: Manchester, New Hampshire, USA
Wesley is spunky, animated and a good cuddlier. He knows several tricks and commands and enjoys running and rolling in the grass, pulling the stuffing out of stuffed toys, burying bones in the carpet (which results in facial rug burns) and chasing/popping those big plastic inflatable balls. He also enjoys playing tug of war with his little French bulldog sister Luna.
Wesley knows sit, stay, paw, other paw, high five, lay down, roll over, and he also knows the names of all his toys like wubba, leopard, ball, snake, Frisbee, etc.
He is probably the friendliest Boston Terrier. He gets overly excited when people come over and also when my boyfriend and I come home. He will sit on everyones lap because he thinks hes a lap dog. He likes to eat bugs and chase laser pointers and reflections like a cat. He sleeps in the bed with us most of the time right under the covers with us. He loves to show off and he loves attention. His nickname is Papa and he responds to that every time. If I say words like Grammy, or Luna, or kitty to him he tilts his cute little head and gets super excited. He loves car rides and hanging out the car window. We love him.
- Name: Crusty
Age: Seven years old
Kind: Maine Coon mix
Home: Dallas, Texas, USA
My cat’s name is Crusty Crustacean Crustacea. He is seven years old and part Maine Coon and part Siamese and part Alley Cat. He was born in Watsonville, California and now lives in Dallas, Texas.
My cat is special because he is orange and white with baby blue eyes. All the vet’s he’s seen say this an anomaly. He’s very silent most of the time, unless he’s hungry or wants to go in the back yard. On more adventurous days he patrols the neighborhood on the roof. Crusty only drinks water out of a running faucet and prefers lounging in window sills. He has been driven from California to Texas and it did not make him happy. He has a brother named Stache, who is a Hemingway (a.k.a. Polydactyl) with too much energy for Crusty. He eats organic food and roasted turkey without hormones, and he’s one of the biggest joys of my life. He may be a little spoiled, but he deserves it!
Crusty was not brought home with the intention of being mine because I’m allergic to cats. He was staying with me so they could finishing nursing by their mother. So, to differentiate him from his brothers and sister, my brother named him “Crusty” because his eyes were crusty. But then, I fell in love with with him and had to keep him (and upgrade his name)!
I worked at a rehab facility and he was born there from an alley cat, so I don’t know what he is. I always suspected he was Maine Coon in parts – but some vets have said he might have some Siamese in him? One interesting thing he did – was after I had a severe accident – he crawled up on my chest and just lay there. He never did that before or ever after.
I am so lucky to have him.
